On Monday, August 21, 2017, a total eclipse of the sun will sweep across the United States from approximately noon until 3:00 PM (Central Time). The eclipse will reach totality at roughly 1:26 PM (CT) in Tennessee. The exact timing and duration of totality depends on your location within the state. This is the first total solar eclipse to affect the continental U.S. since 1979.

Metro Nashville Public Schools will be out of school, so bring your kids along!

12:30 — Quick presentation on solar eclipses and safety by our own Astrophysicist Natasha McMann in the Fellowship Hall — this will last 20 minutes and is kid-friendly!
1:00 — Short worship with creation songs and prayer on the lawn!
1:15 — Put on sunglasses (provided) and watch! (You must wear sunglasses to view the solar eclipse and we will provide 200 NASA-approved Sunglasses so first come, first serve.)

*Bring your blankets or lawn chairs!
